    IAAC presents the10th Annual Mahindra Indo-American Arts Council Film Festival with "Films on Music". Community Sponsor: HarmoNYom

    Documentary: Leaving Home (The life and Music of Indian Ocean)

    Leaving Home is the story of four men who make music together as Indian Ocean, the most significant music band from India. Based in Delhi, this band has been making path-breaking, timeless music outside the mainstream for almost 20 years. Using primarily Western instruments, Indian Ocean has created a very Indian sound which is uniquely their own. Their music is showcased in three different ways – in concert with all their stage finery, a casual performance in their own neighborhood, and raw improvisations from inside their rehearsal room.
    Featuring Indian Ocean.
    Directed by Jaideep Varma. India, 2010, 115 min. NY Premiere. English, Hindi, & Bengali (with English subtitles)
